Loki

So this was a FUN manicure! I knew what I wanted to do when I started, but my initial idea was more along the lines of making it look like a brocade dress. The end result (gold swirls on black, beautiful deep green matte) really reminded me of the outfit Loki wore in The Avengers, so here we go!

As a side note, I am a bit of an Avengers fan-girl. I love what is being done with the Marvel universe and so now I feel a need to create a mani for each of the Avengers. Eventually. We’ll see how this goes.

In the meantime, check out the wonder that is Reclaim, a blackened green matte by Mentality! I seriously love this color (which is why I saved it for last. I am actually posting this out of order because I need you all to coo over this mani sooner rather than later :-D). It covered nicely in one medium-thick coat over black, and two thin coats on its own (ring finger and thumb). I absolutely ADORE the color! Its a deep emerald green that looks shimmery despite the matte finish. I might need to try top coating this just to see what happens!

The stamp was also provided for review, although you can’t see much of it I promise it’s pretty and transferred really well. It is plate 17 from the Born Pretty Store, and I love it! I was almost tempted not to cover it with a design, but I had to follow my plans (and I am glad I did!).

You can pick up the lovely Reclaim for $6.75 (and I strongly recommend you do!), or the Born Pretty Store stamping plate for $2.99 (my design is the upper corner of the top left design, and the whole design on my accent nails). Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did!!
